DANK Chapter Milwaukee Welcomes Spring

By DANK Chapter Milwaukee member Jane Nacker

Milwaukee - After cancelling its Christmas party due to snow, DANK Chapter Milwaukee welcomed spring by planning events for March and April.

At the time of this writing, the DANK Milwaukee Board was finalizing plans for the Membership meeting held on March 19. The DANK Milwaukee Board will update members on Membership, Chor, Dance and other activities.

Two weeks after that, on April 1, 2017, DANK Milwaukee will hold its inaugural Frühlingsfest. Held at the Schwabenhof, Menomonee Falls, the evening will begin with a short concert performance by the DANK Chor, with special guests the Schwaben Männerchor. Classic music from the Johnny Hoffmann und die Herzbuben band will provide listening and dancing pleasure. The DANK Folk Dancers will perform during a band break. Door prizes, gift raffles, and a 50-50 raffle will add to the fun. Food, coffee and desserts will be available for purchase. This event is DANK Milwaukee‘s fundraiser with proceeds going to support German education programs.

The DANK Milwaukee Board has again selected local teachers to receive monetary support for their initiatives in teaching about German language and culture. For Frühlingsfest tickets, or if you would like to donate to DANK Milwaukee’s fundraising for German education programs, please contact DANK Milwaukee President, William Bessa, at 414-331-6957.

DANK Milwaukee is looking forward to German Fest 2017 with all of the usual Gemütlichkeit, and extra this year is the Stihl Timbersports Series. They will host the U.S. Pro and Collegiate Championship at German Fest, with top lumberjack athletes competing in chopping and sawing competitions. German Fest will be held July 28, 29, and 30, 2017.
